Discover the Energy of Green Crystals: A Comprehensive Guide to Color Psychology and Healing Properties

We’re back with another week of color for our educational series, Crystallize the Rainbow!🌈 Throughout this journey we’re combining the fascinating world of color psychology with crystals and their properties.

Green is the color of harmony, balance, new beginnings, and more! Green crystals embody the qualities of the color green, with each individual green crystal bringing its own unique flair! ✨

Green Color Psychology

As we learned in preschool, green is the combination of yellow and blue. 💛 + 💙 = 💚 While this applies to physically creating the color green, it also applies to color psychology! With green, you experience the optimistic and uplifting energy of yellow along with the peaceful and tranquil energy of blue, along with a few other attributes unique to green.

Emotionally, green evokes feelings of harmony, joy, and balance, enveloping you in peace and inviting you to breathe deeply, rejuvenating your spirit. The color green helps us feel grounded and supported, providing space to grow and encouraging a refreshing sense of new beginnings. 🌱✨

Throughout history and across cultures, green has been a symbol of healing and stability—think of the jade amulets of ancient China or the emerald city in the land of Oz. In our lives, green areas are often spaces of refuge and reflection.

 What does green represent for you? What do you think of when you think about the color green? Places, things, feelings, even memories?

Green Color Psychology 🤝 Green Crystals

Now that we have a good foundational understanding of the color psychology of green, it should be super easy to guess and then remember properties of green crystals!

Remember, with green comes uplifting, peaceful and grounding energy; bringing about joy, balance, and the freedom to grow.

Green crystals, while each having some unique properties, will embody the characteristics mentioned above. So, when you see a green crystal, you can accurately guess that it will possess those qualities. Likewise, if you need support in areas such as balance, grounding, or peace, reaching for a green crystal is a great idea!

Green + the Chakras

Let’s explore the wonderful world of GREEN via the chakra system, which beautifully intertwines color psychology and crystal properties. The chakra system originated in ancient India and while there is some discrepancy of how old the system is, we know it’s around 4,000 years old!

What’s a chakra?

Imagine your body as an energy playground filled with spinning wheels of color, consciousness, and power. These are your chakras; your personal energy centers that come in a rainbow spectrum of seven main wheels.

Starting from the base of your pelvis and traveling all the way up to the crown of your head, each chakra is like its own mini-brain, with its own set of superpowers. They’re not stacked in a hierarchy; instead, they work together as a team, governing every aspect of your life. From your physical well-being to your emotional state and even your psychology, these chakras are the ultimate power squad within you.

The Heart Chakra

Our heart chakra is where love, compassion, vulnerability, acceptance, compassion (for others and self), and inner peace all resonate deeply.  

Located in the center of our chest, just above our physical heart, our heart chakra is like a blooming flower, opening up to give and receive love in our daily interactions. It is represented by the color green, which mirrors the chakra’s essence perfectly. Just as green symbolizes growth, renewal, and harmony, the heart chakra embodies these qualities, nurturing our ability to love and be loved. 💚

When focusing on our chakras, the goal is to have them balanced. Sometimes a chakra can be energy deficient and sometimes that same chakra could have too much energy. While lots of energy may sound like a good thing, we actually don’t want an overactive chakra! If one has too much energy it means it’s compensating for something. So, we want to make sure all chakras are balanced and in alignment.

An Energy Deficient Heart Chakra

When we are energy deficient in our heart chakra, we push away love, closeness, and intimacy of all kinds. We have difficulty fully opening up to people and end up building invisible walls to keep others, and the vulnerability needed to form any relationship, at a distance. This can feel like we are protecting ourselves from getting hurt by shutting out love and intimacy, but we are actually causing ourselves more harm and pain.

An Overactive Heart Chakra

Now, you might be wondering, “How could someone have too much love?!” An overactive heart chakra isn’t about having too much love; it’s about an imbalance of love, or too much energy.

When we prioritize giving love and service to others at the expense of our own self-love and care, we risk losing self-respect and harboring resentment toward ourselves and others. This imbalance can also leave us feeling taken advantage of and like a doormat.

Jealousy, neediness, and possessiveness can all accompany an overactive heart chakra as well.

An Aligned Heart Chakra

When our heart chakra is balanced and in alignment, we love, value, and honor ourselves. This allows us to freely give and receive love with others. A balanced heart chakra enables a healthy flow of giving and receiving love.

Balancing our Heart Chakra

By nurturing and balancing our heart chakra, we can tap into love and compassion for ourselves and others, showing up as our best most vulnerable and open selves. Some ways we can take care of and bring our heart chakra back into alignment are:

💗 Loving Affirmations

🧘‍♀️ Meditation and Visualization

❤️‍🩹 Practicing Forgiveness

👭 Quality time with loved ones or community

🤗 Acts of Kindness

💚 And of course . . . using GREEN CRYSTALS while doing the above activities

Our Favorite Green Crystals

Just like the color green in color psychology, green crystals bring a sense of balance, harmony, and renewal to your emotional landscape. They’re like the essence of nature, infusing your spirit with tranquility and growth.

Green is the color of balance and renewal that soothes the soul. It represents the heart chakra, connecting us to feelings of love, compassion, and inner peace. Green promotes a healthy balance of tranquility and growth in our lives. Crystals such as emerald, jade, and green aventurine are celebrated for their ability to restore harmony, foster emotional healing, and enhance personal growth.
